In the urinalysis area, we utilize a mix of automated and manual methods to ensure accuracy in all results we report. By using a mix of flow cytometry, particle imaging and manual microscopy, we capture all of the urine sediment constituents critical for detecting renal function, urinary tract infection, and more.
